HC Deb 20 April 1964 vol 693 c125W
47. Mr. Wall

asked the Minister of Health what arrangements exist with Gibraltar and Malta for the treatment of inoperable cases to be transferred to this country; and whether he will extend similar facilities to Mauritius in special cases.

Mr. Braine

Patients selected and sponsored by the Governments of Malta and Gibraltar are, by a special arrangement of long standing, admitted to hospitals in this country for treatment, the cost being met by the sponsoring government. A request has recently been received from Mauritius by my right hon. Friend the Colonial Secretary and is being examined.
